I am super excited to have my article published in the 2018 Fall Edition of ‘Traces’ Publication from the Barren County Historical Society

I have always loved shining a light upon the stories and things from our past. I have driven and walked many a mile through the back country of Mid-west America and her lovely countryside, to document abandoned places, rural haunts and old cemeteries to capture these hidden stories.

I love the serene moment of capturing a  photograph of a stillness that resides in these places. If you are quiet and listen, you can hear the story, reaching out to you through the abandoned structures and things that are left behind.

It is important to me to share these findings and forgotten stories with others, as a joyful observer of this creation.

I wish to thank a very dear lady, Sandi Gorin, the Editor of “Traces’ Barren County Historical Society, for her profound love of the past and her incredible talent in helping me on finding some much needed information on one of my abandoned places !

If you would like to view the Published Story, it is in ‘Traces’ Fall Edition Volume 46. The Story is titled ‘A Connected Tale of the Mystery of School House 109; John Cole, Founder of Coles’ Bend in Barren County, KY; The Black Horse Tavern Inn, Midway, KY and Richard Cole Jr. Whose Progeny include Frank and Jesse James’

    1. My Indiana volume is already a published book. I sell hardcover and I am setting it into an E-Book format soon to be for sale on my website here. My other volumes I am working on now. The Kentucky volume is pretty large and hopefully will be done within this next year.
